Gluten Free Pumpkin Spice Scones

An autumn twist on a British classic: gluten free pumpkin spice scones. 🎃 If you’ve never tried making your own scones at home, you may be surprised to find out that they’re actually incredibly easy to make and they taste a million times better homemade. 👌So if it’s something you’ve been missing, give them a try!

You can also find my plain scones recipe: here

Tips:

1. If using a plain flour blend, add xanthan gum (if possible) and extra baking powder.

2. Warm up leftovers in the microwave before eating.

3. If you’re struggling to find canned pumpkin (it can be surprisingly hard to find in the UK), Waitrose is the only supermarket in my experience that always has some in stock.

  3. Add the spices and mix well. Then add the milk, canned pumpkin and vanilla extract and mix with a spoon or your hands. The consistency should be thick and sticky, like in the picture below:

  4. Lightly flour your work surface and knead the dough briefly until you can form a ball. Note: you’ll have to wet your hands slightly first to prevent sticking.Homemade gluten free pumpkin spice scones: kneading and forming a dough ball

Make the scones:

  1. Flatten the dough with your hands until it’s about 1 inch thick and shape the scones using a cookie cutter (note: dip the cookie cutter in flour first to prevent sticking). Then re-roll the dough to make more scones.Homemade gluten free pumpkin spice scones: flattening and cutting out the scones with a cookie cutter
